    Madonna of the Book Painting by Sandro Botticelli. The Madonna of the Book, or the Madonna del Libro, is a small painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli, and is preserved in the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan. The painting is executed in tempera on panel. It dates from between 1480 and 1483.
“She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn… The angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying: ‘Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.’”Luke 2:7, 10-14

    CHRISTMAS 2021

    Once a December morn A Babe, meek, was born. The first veil of history torn, To many His glory shorn.

    Wooden manger rough adorned, Thence a Cross and Crown of thorns. Another morn to rise anew, To Christ, all glory, honor and praises due!

    Alleluia, Alleluia! In this One December morn We are made new.

    RA Capone,
